Published below is an edited extract from a Lexit supporter which shines some light on the 'special relationship' between the UK and US governments. The author of this is a relative of one of our branch members and has asked to remain anonymous.

 

 

 

I am 79 years old and wish to speak out. I am not yet a communist party member but support your parties stance on both the Lexit campaign and opposition to TTIP. USA’s Special Relationship with the UK is of a controlling capitalist force; far from a friendship. This is historically true and in fact worse than the public know. I mentioned history so here's some to think about.
First the War of Independence 1774 – 1793. A result of the 13 British Colonies in North America rebelling against Britain imposing Taxes, Laws and General Control of their lives and living. Today Britain is in the same position with the EU dictating what we can and cannot do.

How dare Obama tell us to stay in when it has nothing to do with the USA and his country went to war over the same issues in 1774. He quoted the special relationship between our two countries yet the USA only entered WW2 because of the invasion of Hawaii by the Japanese in 1942, three years after the start of the war.

ar on the 'Red Empire': How America planned for an attack on BRITAIN in 1930 with bombing raids and chemical weapons• Plan Red was code for massive war with British Empire•
In 1930, a mere nine years before the outbreak of World War Two, America drew up proposals specifically aimed at eliminating all British land forces in Canada and the North Atlantic, thus destroying Britain's trading ability and bringing the country to its knees. Previously unparalleled troop movements were launched as an overture to an invasion of Canada, which was to include massive bombing raids on key industrial targets and the use of chemical weapons, the latter signed off at the highest level by none other than the legendary General Douglas MacArthur. 

America only wants to control. We must fight TTIP and vote how we choose to. I'm for Lexit.

"The blockade has left the island in severe economic difficulties and we very much hope this visit by Obama will be the catalyst to really drive forwards towards proper, normalised relations" Cuba Solidarity Campaign Director, Rob Miller, said in an interview with TRT World.

The US blockade of Cuba continues and the US occupation of Guantanamo Bay continues.

John Haylett explains in the Morning Star, why the only sensible vote in the referendum for trade unionists and socialists is to withdraw from the EU.

Twenty-eight years since French diplomat Jacques Delors was invited to the TUC Congress at Bournemouth to schmooze delegates about the delights of a "social Europe" the penny still hasn’t dropped with many in the trade union movement.

Only rail unions Aslef and RMT, together with the bakers’ BFAWU, have thrown their weight behind the movement to leave the EU. The rest either play the Emperor’s New Clothes game of claiming still to be able to discern a "social Europe" or accept that things aren’t too good but suggest they can be changed.
